Design Lead at Glossier
New York City, NY, US

Glossier’s mission to democratize beauty is brought to life visually and in words by the Creative team. We communicate that mission through curated campaigns and IRL experiences to create a visual dialogue of what Glossier looks and feels like.

The Creative team is looking for a Design Lead to manage print collateral, brand visual growth, and creation of supporting content. The Design Lead will be responsible for maintaining a comprehensive understanding of company strategy and brand goals, keeping the brand moving forward and working collaboratively with cross-functional partners in Marketing, Digital Product, and Retail teams.

We are looking for a proactive, self-motivated, and details-obsessed candidate with solid design, typography and branding skills; someone that is eager to take on new challenges, introduce and implement new approaches and ideas, grow, test and learn.

You could say our team functions like an internal incubator—a hub of talent including creative direction, content, production, visual merchandising and design—that works collectively to build the future beauty company. Our approach is inclusive, discerning, and above all personal.
